Our Year 6 pupils have just returned from a school trip to London. We are an international school from the Czech Republic. My pupils were having lunch on a lawn outside of a London museum and were facinated by the red uniform of Year 1 pupils from a British school (our pupils don't wear uniforms). They began to take photos of the children from a distance when a teacher from the British school approached them and said "OH NO! Don't take photos of them". Taken aback my pupils returned to eating lunch and later asked me why she had asked them to stop. I was trained as a teacher in the UK and so I am not really surprised by the extent of the prohibitions and the seemingly unreasonable policies or, at least, their strict implementation by overreacting teachers. But its memories of such that make me glad to work outside of the UK.
